    I have a blue splash ameracauna hen that I hatched. She is by a blue roo and mom could have been a blue or a black. What are the genetics to get splash as I would like to breed more of same.
    Also does splash to splash always get splash? The hen I have is very bold, is boldness maybe agressiveness heredity

    Splash X Splash=100% Splash
    Splash X Blue=50% Blue & 50% Splash
    Blue X Blue=50%Blue, 25% Black & 25% Splash
    These are the combinations to get Splash.

    Her mom would have had to be blue rather than black if her father was blue. Splash cant come from blue over black. Blue x Black = 50% blue, 50% black chicks, if you hatch a good number. Doesn't always work out 50/50
